For some couples facing the end of a marriage, a contested, contentious divorce is not the only option. An uncontested divorce is a valid choice for many California couples, allowing parties to avoid a lengthy litigation process and court battle over various types of divorce issues.
A divorce can be uncontested when both parties agree on issues involving custody, visitation, property division, support and more. With an uncontested case, a spouse would not file any documents that differ from the requests outlined in the submitted divorce petition. While it is not an optimal choice in every situation, it could be a positive choice for you, your soon-to-be ex-spouse and any minor children.
